A. R. Ammons: Selected Poems (American Poets Project) - hardcover

[SR: 903794], Hardcover, [EAN: 9781931082938], Library of America, Library of America, Book, [PU: Library of America], 2006-04-06, Library of America, Meditative, comic, emotionally wrenching, steeped in both the natural world and the life of the mind, the poetry of A. R. Ammons is at once cosmic in scope and intimate in its moment-to-moment transformations. With his mastery of description and cadence, his roiling wit and fearless gaze, Ammons was a philosopher of the everyday who found surprise everywhere he looked. "He is often witty, sometimes bawdy," writes editor David Lehman, "on a perpetual quest to find forms capacious enough for an imagination intent on finding a place for everything." A compound, in editor David Lehman's words, of "wisdom, pathos, humor, mortal longing, and intimations of immortality," the work of A. R. Ammons is like nothing else in modern American poetry. Ammons's tireless formal invention and restless curiosity about every aspect of nature and of the mind are embodied in poetry that is effortlessly accessible and generous in its impulses. Whether spreading out in the long forms of Tape for the Turn of the Year or Garbage, or honing his perceptions down to the extreme brevity of his shorter lyrics, he holds tight to his vision of the way "all day / life itself is bending, / weaving, changing, / adapting, failing, / succeeding." This new selection covering the whole range of Ammons's career offers a superb introduction to the pleasures and surprises of his work. His uncanny ability to balance wide-ranging abstract speculation with meticulous observation of natural phenomena, in poetry that encompasses moods of tragic pathos, low comedy, and seemingly casual profundity marks him as one of the preeminent figures in our recent literature, 9966, United States, 10159391011, African American, 10159392011, Asian American, 10159394011, Hispanic American, 10159395011, Native American, 10159384011, Regional & Cultural, 10248, Poetry, 17, Literature & Fiction, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books

Archie Randolph Ammons, 1926 - Poet and teacher A. R. Ammons was born in North Carolina in 1926. He served his country during World War II aboard a U.S. Navy destroyer escort in the South Pacific, which is where he began writing poetry. After he returned from duty, he attended Wake Forest College, North Carolina and the University of California, Berkley. He began teaching at Cornell University in 1964 and, in 1971, became a Goldwin Smith Professor of Poetry there. Ammons has authored nearly 30 books of poetry and some of those titles include Garbage (1993), which won the National Book Award and the Library of Congress's Rebekah Johnson Bobbitt National Prize for Poetry; A Coast of Trees (1981), which received the national Book Critics Circle Award for Poetry; Sphere (1974), which received the Bollingen Prize; and Collected Poems 1951-1971 (1972), which won the National Book Award. Other honors include the Academy's Tanning Prize, the Poetry Society of America's Robert Frost Medal and the Ruth Lilly Prize. He has also received fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, the MacArthur Foundation, and the American Academy of Arts and Letters. A. R. Ammons, Books, Fiction and Literature, A. R.
